Christmas cheer to elderly residents
PUPILS from Fearns brought some festive cheer to elderly residents near school and in care homes.
Link Group Tutor Mrs Parker and School Support Assistant Mrs Stead accompanied pupils to deliver presents, letters and cards to residents living near school and also to Olive House in Bacup and Deerplay Rest Home in Weir.
Vera Almond, 93, is a resident in the Weir home. She said:“It is certainly different for us to get a visit and they have all been very pleasant. I used to love school.”
The pupils chatted to the residents, gave cards and presents and sang Christmas songs.
